The quartet known for making videos in just about every environment has released a new music video that breaks YouTube in a very odd way.
The video in question is for the song Obsession off of the album Hungry Ghosts. The video features 567 printers and – as the band describes it – “a lot of paper”.
Now usually we would place the video right about here so that we don’t spoil to much but the video for Obsession has a rather curious description.
The band warns that the video contains a lot of flashing colours and advises viewers to manually set their resolution to 1440p or 2160p.
“Just leaving it on “Auto HD” results in some pretty intense distortion during a few sections, because when the the colors and patterns get crazy, there’s actually just too much information flying by for YouTube’s normal HD compression,” explains OK Go.
The band goes on to explain that the issue is caused by a bit rate limitation and says that it is working with YouTube to solve the problem but there is no quick fix.
Now that you know what you need to do check out the video.
So yes, that is a lot of paper but as the quartet notes right at the start of the video – all of it was recycled and the proceeds earned were donated to Greenpeace.
OK Go are rather well known for their crazy off the wall music videos and if you’ve got nothing to do this afternoon take a look at some of our favourites contained in this YouTube playlist.
